My services

Use your stories to raise awareness of your work and attract new customers

Do you struggle to communicate what you do and how it can benefit people?

I help people identify what their stories are and how to use them effectively to spread the word about their business and attract more customers. 

I offer:

Training and workshops

Consultancy

Writing and editing

Mentoring

Do you find creating content keeps slipping down your task list? Do you need someone you can talk through ideas with and who will keep you on track? I provide mentoring to help you create content consistently.

Writing

Do you struggle to find time to write for your business? I can write articles for you. Choose whether you would like one blog a week or one blog a month and I will write them in your tone of voice.

Editing

Do you produce written content for your business and would like a professional to read it through and make sure it’s up to scratch? I offer 4 hour blocks of editing. Perfect for blogs, newsletters and one-off copy.

Working with me

There are two ways of working with me. Most of my work is bespoke but I do offer some standard packages. You can find these on my services pages. Go through the check out and you will receive an email take you through the process. If you can’t see what you are looking for, please contact me to talk about your requirements.

We’ll have arrange a 15 minute discovery call about what you would like help with. This is usually via Zoom video conferencing or we can talk on the phone. Pick a time in my diary that suits you, call 07517 715570 or email rachel@extance.co.uk to arrange.

I’ll then come back to you with a proposal, including the scope of work, costs, and when I expect to be able to undertake the work. If you are happy to go ahead, I will send you a contract.

You will have a clear time frame and I will let you know what information I need from you to be able to undertake your project.

I usually find it is easier to talk through what you would like to say over the phone rather than an email exchange.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. I pay attention to your tone of voice, whether you write as yourself or a company. If you are not sure what your tone of voice is, we will discuss this when we begin working together. 

It depends on what I am asked to do. I usually write around 800 words. This is a good length for explaining a topic and keeping your reader’s attention.

If you would like a shorter piece, or you are planning pillar content of 2,000 words or more, please ask me for a quote.

I offer a draft and up to two revisions. This gives us plenty of opportunity to make sure you are happy with the copy I have provided you with.

Yes. I ghost write (sometimes called white label) a lot of articles for companies. I don’t share who my clients are unless they say they are happy for me to do so. 

Yes I can write for print. I worked in newspapers for many years and can write material for brochures and magazines.

I work with a network of companies. If you would like images, infographics, video, or design, then I can co-ordinate the project for you or I will be happy to suggest suitable people for you to talk to.

About Rachel Extance

I bring a journalist’s perspective to your organisation and focus on what information will be relevant and engaging to your customers – and potential customers.

I write website copy, blog posts, articles for print, social media posts, magazines – anything where you need creative copy to help your work and ideas reach a wider audience. I’m very good at simplifying complex issues to make them more accessible. I’ll also help you see the stories in your business and show you how to share them.

My background is in journalism. I worked on local newspapers for 15 years as a reporter, then on the newsdesk, managing the reporting team and planning what stories go in the paper and on the website.

I started my business, The Story Cave, in 2017 and write for a variety of clients.
